Offer Condolence for the family of Loretta LopezPrint Obituary & Condolences
I cried when her daughter Maryjane gave me the news that my cousin Lorrie was gone, but my heart tells me that she will always be with me. I’m glad that she’s not in pain and happy and healthy in Heaven with her mom, dad and brother. My condolences to the entire family on the loss of your beloved.
See you in my dreams my dear cousin. You will be missed. Love you. Cousin Bubbles
Momma was one of kind. She always wanted better for everyone. She pulled no punches if my lip stick was to dark. When I see green plants or baskets I think of her passion for them. She loved to be up beat and laugh. She was definitely a health nut and believed in eating healthy. She always put a smile on my face. I will miss our conversations and our counseling to each other lol. I am going to miss how she always gave me warm welcomes. She has been with me since the age of ten and always expressed to me I was family-she always made me feel special. She played a prominent role in my life and always will. I will always love her and be thankful she leaves amazing children behind so I can continue to have her legacy live on with me. Saddened she left suddenly but at peace knowing her suffering is gone. She in a peaceful place now with her loving God.
I am sooo sorry for the loss of your mom. Love you all.
